that paul ryan and mitt romney are stumping there today. >> i'm curious, mike, why the president isn't able to just stay in the white house. is it because the oval office duties beckon too much? or does he go to virginia because he wants to do a campaign stop here and there? >> reporter: i think it's got a lot to do with it. it's a two-fer. there are no public events on the president's schedule in virginia. there were no events in nevada we were told about. but he did go to hoover dam, has photo ops. so it's a side benefit. it's like a camp, a retreat where they can concentrate on what they need to do tuesday night. >> i wonder if he's planning like a five guys outing, you know? >> reporter: could be. he loves his burgers. no questions. >> before i let you go, mike, can i just ask you, the ten or of things going into this debate prep? how stressful do you sense the white house is about this when you combine both the president's performance last week and then joe biden's this? maybe it picked up a little bit they think with joe biden. >> i think there's a sense of relief that biden did what

the romney/ryan campaign raised last night in milwaukee. we look at how the money will get put to work. topping the political headlines, a whole new round of fire on the sunday morning talk shows over -- the debate. tell you how nbc's "meet the press," senior obama campaign adviser robert gibbs conceded the president could have done better and also took aim at governor romney. >> it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations that he has for himself. but, look, i think part of that was because as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney. speaker gingrich was pretty eloquent in running during the primaries in saying that mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> former speaker and republican candidate newt gingrich said this morning that president obama has no excuse. >> the president of the united states had 90 minutes. now, if he had done his homework and actually prepared and actually studied romney, why didn't he say it? i mean why didn't he take romney head-on? the job of the president is supposed to be competent and be

, that is why they said that the romney-ryan tax plan would in fact raise taxes on middle-class families with a child an average of $2,000 a year. $2,000 a year. and by the way, every model looked at it from the so-called -- the american enterprise institute -- they say the same thing. taxes will have to be raised on the middle-class if they succeed with the tax cut. folks, it is time lift the burden off the middle class, not double down on the great recession that hit them. [applause] as a consequence of the great recession, middle-class families lost $16 trillion in wolf appeared mostly in equity in their homes. they saw them evaporate and their pension plans. it is time for everyone to chip been come including the wealthy. as i said last night, we should not be surprised at their continued opposition to everyone chipping in. these other folks to talk about 47% of the american people being unwilling to take [take [booing] and by the way, the congressman being unwilling to take responsibility. [booing] and by the way, the congressmen said they are takers. these people are like my mom an
, comparing with that of romney and ryan. steve. >> so romney and ryan do have somewhat different plans. we talked a lot in the debate last week about taxes. this is the spending side of the equation. to kind of lay out apropos conversations we had earlier in the show about what ryan and romney each believe about spending, let's start with kind of an overview of where the three people would like to bring spending over the next ten years. the 20-year historical average is at about 21%,ed red line that you see across there. obama would like to have spending end up at 23%. romney and ryan both want it down at 20%. so there's a clear difference, and they all agree on where it should go. what gets interesting is as you dig into the detail of what gets cut, and you'll see some very, i think, fascinating differences among these guys. so on social security, as you heard president obama say in the last debate, the three guys are actually in the same place. they want to spend the same amount on social security in the next ten years. when you get to medicare, romney and ryan are in the same place, but
and most of those stops have been this year, mitt romney and paul ryan are there again this weekend as john shows us it is the battleground of the battleground states. and ohio's working moms could be the key to victory. >> the lights still on past midnight. another 20-hour day for jessica. >> i'm a single mom of a 5-year-old little girl who is fantastic. i work full time. and go to school full time. so my day usually starts around 4:45 in the morning, and ends close to 1:00 a.m. you do what you have to do in this economy. >> her vote, she said, is for jillian's future. she was leaning mitt romney until his own words pushed her back to undecided. >> about the 47%, and i can't worry about them. how can you put your faith and trust in a candidate that doesn't care about everybody? >> to win ohio and other key battlegrounds, romney must overcome the doubts of working moms like jessica. new cnn polling shows a post-debate romney bounce but still a narrow obama lead. white women are the battle within the battleground. 52% support the president now. that's up from the 47% he received here in 2008
to play offense in wisconsin friday. >> it's time romney and ryan and the republican congress take a pledge to the middle class people saying we're going to level the playing field. >> reporter: a day after a spirited vice-presidential debate. >> with all due respect that's a bunch malarkey. >> watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. >> reporter: both candidates headed back to the campaign trail. >> i feel great. >> reporter: paul ryan stopped for breakfast with his family before teaming up with mitt romney in ohio. >> there was one person on the stage with thoughtfulness who was respectful -- >> yeah! >> --who was steady and poised. >> yeah! >> reporter: the obama campaign said the vice president walked away with the win. but friday, the white house had to defend his answer about the deadly attack in benghazi, libya. >> we weren't told they want more security. >> reporter: former security officials testified this week that they had asked for more manpower. >> he is doubling down on denial. we need to understand what happened. >> reporter: white house officials defe
about the math for this. and paul ryan said look, the math takes too long. well, mitt romney's solution, he just decided there was not math involved in this problem. and that is absolutely crazy, the only thing he outlined in the budget, that he would cut is big bird. he has taken to sesame street and let wall street run wild. >> if you impose this debt on future generations, and big bird, i can tell you as the father of three children grown now, but any father who has gone to a toy store knows that big bird is a pretty commercially successful. and whether or not we should subsidize it, and say it is not that big of a percentage of the budget, that is true, but every penny that you raise as a cut, seems to be sacred with this administration, and they can't cut it. and i think the american people understand this is a big election and a big choice. >> meanwhile, the big debate about the presidential debate has spilled into a second week. >> the president of the united states had 90 minutes. now, if he had done his homework and actually prepared and actually studied romney, why didn't he s

in syria, health care and abortion. both often interrupted each other. biden criticized ryan and romney for launching political attacks about the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya before they knew the facts. ryan said the attack shows the u.s. is projecting weakness abroad. the two also took jabs at each other over job creation. >> i've had it up to here with this notion that 47%. it's about time they take some responsibility here. >> did they come here and inherit that situation? absolutely. but we're going in the wrong direction. look at where we are. the economy is barely limping along. it's growing at 1.3%. that's slower than it grew last year, and last year was slower than the year before. >> on tax reform, ryan said there aren't enough rich americans to tax to pay for all of the president's spending. vice president joe biden says the only way to pay for mitt romney's plan is to raise middle class taxes. >> both president obama and mitt romney say they're pleased with how their running mates did in last night's debate. president obama watched from air force one as he returned to
at the mobility center in richmond this morning. then later romney will join his running mate paul ryan in lancast lancaster, ohio. president obama will host a dinner for winners of a campaign contest in the d.c. area. he does not have campaign stops on his schedule during the day. >>> feisty and aggressive. this morning those are some of the words analysts and viewers are using to describe last night's vice presidential debate. the two took jabs at each other over the economy. the crisis in syria, health care, and abortion. vice president joe biden criticized paul ryan and mitt romney for launching critical attacks about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya before they knew the facts. congressman ryan said the attack is projecting weakness abroad. the two are both snarky when referring to controversial comments made in the past. >> i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. >> on tax reform, ryan said there rcht enough rich americans to tax to pay for all of obama's spending. vice president

's not like he is finished campaigning because last night he did grab dinner are some contest winners in d.c. the pictures of that dinner were blasted out online last night. as

and for good reason. new poll numbers show mitt romney continuing to close the gap. in florida, he now leads the president 51-44. and a new national gallup poll is ahead 49-47. >> reporter: paul ryan tailgated with football fans in ohio. mitt romney rallied supporters. the republican team fanned out across the key battleground state saturday. >> we need ohio. if we get ohio, we're gonna be able to take back america? >> reporter: the stakes are high. no republican has won the white house without a victory in ohio. at a rally in portsmouth, romney told the crowd he sees the enthusiasm going. >> when i'm president, i'm going to help save the american family and get good jobs for every american. >> reporter: voters say the economy is the no. 1 issue in this election. >> i bet on american workers and american ingenuity, and three years later, that is paying off in a big way. >> reporter: president obama argues his decision to bail out the auto industry saved jobs. >> gm is back. ford and chrysler are growing again. together, our auto industry has created nearly a quarter of a million new jobs in
it is balanced. >> if you taking your money, who do you give it to? joe biden and president obama or ryan and romney? >>shepard: but don't you think people want specifics? >>guest: what they --. >>shepard: you are saying you will not mess with the deficit but you are not adding more tax money. if you don't add more money, how does it work? explain that. >>guest: those details are talked about. >> stimulating the economy, the president has not laid out his plan and they are saying, why doesn't governor romney lay out his plan. he has done it over and over and over again. >> he talked about cutting big bird. >> i would rather be on the side of momentum. >> if you are driving across the country and you say you will do it in 15 years can you not do that unless you speed. that is what mitt romney is saying. >>shepard: they both say they will fix this but neither has told us how. it stands to reason that the american people would go, you should tell us how but they are not going to. >>guest: i think we will hear it from the vice president. >> i would love to hear the details. >>shepard: all rig

of time in the buckeye state. that's perhaps why we saw governor romney and paul ryan reuniting last night in lancaster, ohio. big crowd down there, about 8,500 jammed into the town square. but there is some ground to be made up for this campaign. polls show that president obama is still holding a lead over governor romney in ohio. but those polls also show that the governor is closing in, within striking distance now of the president. speaking of the president, he also was in ohio this week and admitted publicly that he had a bad night out in denver for that first presidential debate. obviously a lot of republicans and democrats agreed with his assessment. the president said he was too polite and that voters can expect him to see him being a lot more active in the second debate up at hofstra university in new york. back here in ohio, paul ryan's got a big day here. he's got two stops in ohio, starting with this rally a little later this morning, and then he'll go up to minnesota before ending the night in wisconsin. he's expected to take sunday off the trail, little rest for the weary, if
are absolutely right. again, i compared romney's debate performance to the ryan speech in tampa. it was a good performance but it was packed with lies. i think the entire media was focusing on stage craft and performance or entertainment or acting ability and not on the substance of what they said. on the substance of what he said mitt romney simply did not tell the truth about the $5 million, about health care, about a whole lot of stuff. kevin in chicago, kevin getting rid of big bird good idea? >> caller: yeah, my granddaughter is four years old, so i'm ul up to speed on big bird. and it brings back memories of when my kids were young. >> bill: same here. >> caller: it is just an example of the crap that comes out of his mouth. they don't realize the value of putting something on tv for the kids to watch -- >> bill: and learn, yeah. >> caller: and the whole industry that has spawned off of it of the kids toy, and everything -- >> bill: you got it. big bird is a job creator. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ bit.
